Quote du Jour

If we took away women's right to vote, we'd never have to worry about another Democrat president. It's kind of a pipe dream, it's a personal fantasy of mine, but I don't think it's going to happen. And it is a good way of making the point that women are voting so stupidly, at least single women.

--Ann Coulter
But Ann, aren't you a single woman? Don't you vote? And speaking of which, didn't you get caught voting in the wrong precinct?

The thing about Ann that most liberals and "social libertarians" don't understand is that she uses these outrageous statements to illustrate a point. You tend to not see the forest for the trees. Look at the larger context of what she's saying and the point she is making.

And incidentally, this:

didn't you get caught voting in the wrong precinct?

has resulted in absolutely no charges. Innocent until proven guilty... except when it's a conservative, right? Some "social libertarian" you are.

Here's the full statement she made:

It also makes the point, it is kind of embarrassing, the Democratic Party ought to be hanging its head in shame, that it has so much difficulty getting men to vote for it. I mean, you do see it’s the party of women and 'We’ll pay for health care and tuition and day care -- and here, what else can we give you, soccer moms?'

As you can see, her point now is obvious. Once again, context trumps the hateful rhetoric of Ann bashers.

Even with the extra paragraph which I had linked to she said women shouldn't vote. And her point is false because men do vote for the democratic party or do you honestly believe her gross generalization? And how is that not a hateful statement towards women in itself?

As for the voting issue, she was caught voting in the wrong district, that is not a matter of opinion. As for her being charged with a crime, well she got off with the same excuse she used when it was discovered she wasn't being truthful about her age: she was fearing a stalker. As if a stalker could get her addresss from her voting records... I don't buy it.

Oh you can knock it off with the quotations around social libertarian... I get it, you don't understand what it means so that's your little snarky way of just trying to lump me into nasty little word liberal. So, I'm a "liberal" and you are a troll... happy now?

Why are you so angry?
